Hello everyone, I just bought a 97 GT!!! (red)(automatic)

It's my first car and I love it. My dad tried to get me to buy my grandfathers lincoln continental that smells like crap.

I was just wondering if you guys had any tips for me to make it more sporty?
I guess thats how i could put it
I want it to be able to go quite fast and look cool

But, i'm in Michigan so we have a bunch of snow in the winters so a really low body kit is going to be a pain if I hit a snow bank..

Well, any tips/reccomendations would be GREATLY appreciated without making it
a ...Ricer... *shudders*

Not too many older gen GAs around the site, but there should be just enough to get you started in the right direction.
Good luck and congrats on the purchase!

Welcome, before ppl eat your face, the search button is the best bet then after that post quesitons. Theres tons of sites with GA stuff that are sponsored fro mthie site. theres many more just browse around. As far as "going fast and looking cool" with GA's you really need to pick one. Its like this, either get bodykit/ground effects. or get a supercharger lol. Some do a little in between but u get wat i mean..
